pls try
Sub writeAppendBgnCSV()
' REFERENCE MIcrosoft ActiveX DataObjects
    Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

    Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    strFile = Workbooks("FileWithData.xlsm").FullName

    strCon = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" & strFile & _

You may give this a try...

Place the following code on a Standard Module in the file "FileWithData.xlsm".
The code assumes the full path of your existing csv file is "C:\FileStorage\ImportedData.csv"
Sub CopyDataToExistingCSVFile()
Dim swb As Workbook, wb As Workbook
Dim sws As Worksheet
Dim csvFileName As String, TempCSVFileName As String
Dim str As String

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.DisplayAlerts = False

Set swb = ThisWorkbook          'Source Workbook
Set sws = swb.Sheets("Sheet1")  'Source Sheet

'Full path of the existing csv file
csvFileName = "C:\FileStorage\ImportedData.csv"

Set wb = Workbooks.Open(csvFileName)

wb.Sheets(1).Range("A1").Insert Shift:=xlDown

wb.SaveAs Filename:=csvFileName, _
    FileFormat:=xlCSVMSDOS, CreateBackup:=False

wb.Close True
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Open in new window
